I put a roll of 35mm film into my Kodak Brownie 127 maybe a year before I got it developed, I can’t even remember it was just so long. I am ridiculously lazy when it comes to finishing rolls of film and this is definitely no exception. I just wanted to see if the thing even worked but of course it took me months of having it in my handbag to actually take some shots. Then I crawled into my wardrobe in the dead of night to remove the film (having placed the 35mm film in the camera with tissue holding the canister steady and winding onto the 127 spool) and kept the film on my desk for a while just to make sure I had built up the suspense long enough.
Here are the long overdue results, showing crazy light leaks, strange blurriness and overlapping frames coming from bad internet advice saying advancing 1.5 turns was enough…it wasn’t.
Creepy mannequin shadow, nice colours.Indescribable foliage. I cannot remember enough to figure out what it is because I took it so long ago.The city and bad film cutting technique.The back of my brothers head in a park?Fremantle street.Fremantle light on the street.
I might try this camera again, maybe spend less time taking the photos and more time winding the film on but I’m glad to have experimented anyway!
